Why This Indicator Matters

It's a lot smarter to prevent a problem than to wait until it is a crisis. Health insurance plays a crucial role in children's health by making it possible for children to receive access to both preventative care and acute and chronic illness care. Improved access to effective health care means improvement to the health of children nationwide. Children with health insurance, whether public or private, are more likely than children without insurance to have a regular and accessible source of health care. Medicaid and the State Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) play a crucial role in providing coverage for uninsured youth; these programs provide coverage for more than one if hour children. Solutions like these- that get everyone to participate in the health insurance system- make healthcare more efficient and affordable for us all.
